People made fakes many years ago. There are 3-legged "Hobo" nickles (made today) very cheap around. (I dug a 16D Mercury.....fake :blowup:

I may have to do that. I do trust the coin dealer who looked at it as he has been in business a long time and spent quite a while looking
it over before he gave his opinion.

Wow....!!!! Congrats FPD on the 3- legger!!!!!! Haven't been on this forum in a LONG time as I've all but quit coinshootin and now chasin nuggets. Good to see you're still banging out the oldies! Yes...I did dig a pretty nice 3-legger. From my research I "read" (take with a grain)….that one way to help determine a real from a fake is to look for the "stream" that makes it look like the buffalo is peeing? This was caused by the faulty dies when all the 3-leggers were struck...??? Here's some pics of my ONLY truly rare coin find...the 3-legger..... Up to 41 gold nuggets this season so far and lovin it!!!!!! Miss coinshootin but not the traveling to find them so hangin close to home chasing the yellow rocks...... Keep up the great work on the oldies!!!!!
